Garden Receipts

  • Edition: First Edition
  • Book condition: Good Condition
  • Quantity available: 1
MacMillan, London, 1877. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. brown end-papers; Every one familiar with a garden knows that one of the chief cares therein is combating the various insects and other pests that infest it. Without clear knowledge and continued attention in this way much of the labour and expense devoted to the garden will be thrown away. The object of this book is the collection, in a handy form, of information on this and other topics embraced under the general heading of "Garden Receipts." Great pains have been taken to make the collection of Receipts, &c., as complete as possible. A great variety being given for one purpose, is justified by the fact that one remedy easily applied in a given district may be too expensive in another; and by the extreme difficulty of getting rid of many of the pests alluded to in these pages. The Glossary of the materials used is made a special feature, and is as complete as possible. Although the arrangeme ... Read more

Baton Press, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, 1985. First Edition. Black Cloth. Very Good/Near Fine. Illustrator: Photo's, Maps, Diagrams. gilt titles spine, over 150 photographs, maps, engravings and diagrams with over 100 in colour. The author has always believed in the possibility of a geometric solution existing to the mystery of the valley of Rennes-Ie-Chateau and that it would pin-point the location of artifacts of religious significance in the area. This work demonstrates the proof of his conviction. What is surprising is that the geometry does so much more. It portrays in its shapes a deeper meaning to certain legends and could lead us to discoveries which will show that these legends may have been the records of actual events in our early history. Not only is the geometry an amazing extrapolation of the constructions and topographical features of the area but it is self-confirming in the numerical ciphers it exposes. Once the author was in possession of the secret numbers, they revealed in the geome ... Read more
